dc.description.abstract <p>A. tumefaciens is a plant pathogen responsible for crown gall disease in infected plants and is unique in its ability to carry out inter-kingdom gene transformation. For this reason, A. tumefaciens has been extensively studied with regards to its transformation capabilities and is widely used as a tool for plant transformation. Recent work has identified hundreds of putative non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) that map to regions on the chromosomes of A. tumefaciens. ncRNAs, called non-coding because they are not believed to code for proteins, are thought to play important regulatory roles in organisms from every walk of life. Further studies of the roles of ncRNAs in A. tumefaciens have the potential to reveal conserved ncRNA regulatory mechanisms, increase knowledge regarding plant-pathogen interactions, and provide insight into ways to broaden Agrobacterium’s transformation capabilities in recalcitrant plant species.</p>
